Investing In Our Students
Students are the heart and center of WGC’s mission and activities, which guide and support each individual as they pursue their academic and career path.
Our student body reflects the rich mosaic of cultures and religions in the Galilee including Jews, Muslims, Christians, Druze, Bedouin, and immigrants from the Former Soviet Union and Ethiopia. Minorities comprise half of the WGC student population. The College serves as a stimulating cultural meeting ground where individuals of diverse backgrounds often meet for the first time as they study together and experience shared campus life in an atmosphere of tolerance and mutual respect.
Many of our students are the first in their families to pursue an academic degree, and women comprise more than 70% of the WGC student body. The College supports students in every way possible through an extensive array of student advancement services, scholarships, and social support services. The tremendous impact of higher education becomes evident as graduates confidently develop in their profession and build families that are financially secure.
